Hi, we are running VMware Vcenter Server 5.0 and would like to migrate a single VM to Azure.
IE As Is.
Its currently running a legacy version of Windows (2008R2/SQL2008).
The purpose is to keep it alive for the next couple of years only until the business have made the decision on the future for this data/product.
It would cost too much to try and upgrade the current environment to supported versions or leave it - 'as is' on premises.
But my issue is that all the documentation and options from Microsoft on this, seem to only support VMware v5.5 VMs.
So if i try and use the migration assistance etc, the OVF files and subsequent options are not compatible.
(i edited the OVF file so it would create the VM but it fails on permission access later)
I am happy to follow any process that allows the v5 VM to be created/migrated/imported - whatever, into Azure.
As long as we dont need to start upgrading the on premises systems to newer versions.
